“Out in California”

“Who’s Gonna Build Your Wall?”

Veterans Day: The Tom Russell Anthology is a 2-disc set produced by Tom Russell and Shout! Factory’s David McLees that includes a 24-page booklet featuring photos, Russell’s art, and an essay by Mike Regenstreif. Anthology contains 2 previously unreleased songs, “Dark Angel,” (acoustic version), and a new recording titled “Roll The Credits,” as well as songs from 19 of his albums including “Navajo Rug,” “Big Water,” with Iris Dement, “One And One” with Shawn Colvin, recorded about four years before her debut album, 4 songs co-written with Dave Alvin, and of course, “Veteran’s Day,” a song about an American POW once powerfully covered by Johnny Cash.

Born in Los Angeles in 1953, the masterful songwriter now lives on the El Paso-Juarez border. Raised on the American West’s cowboy music, Russell’s musical style emerged as a mix of this as well as country, Tex-Mex and folk. Russell has recorded 25 albums and his songs have been covered by artists such as Johnny Cash, Nancy Griffith, Joe Ely, k.d. Lang, Suzy Bogguss, and Ramblin´ Jack Elliott. Tom Russell, who along with Dave Alvin was a pioneer of the Americana radio format, has received awards from ASCAP, CMA, and Folk Alliance, among others. Russell has appeared on “The Late Show With David Letterman” four times in the last few years. 

In addition to his songwriting career, Russell has lived a fascinating life. He has published three books, is an established painter, earned a Master´s Degree in Criminology from the University of California and taught school in Nigeria during the Biafran war.
